Nu Pogodi (Just You Wait!). Remix video with Russian pop standards

Nu Pogodi (Just You Wait!) was a popular Soviet-era cartoon series. Here, old clips from the series are matched with Russian pop/rock standards. I think that this is the Russian equivalent of the Road Runner and the Coyote… and my Nicky agrees with me!

Vinni Pukh, Chast 1 (Winnie the Pooh (Russian-style), Part 1)

Here’s a different take on Winnie the Pooh, it’s not the yellow Disney bear! He’s a dark-brown Mishka-like character, and Piglet is rather skinny, to be sure. Again, you need no facility in Russian to follow the fun!

Poliklinika Kota Leopolda (Leopold the Cat Goes to the Polyclinic)

A sweet little Russian cartoon about Leopold the Cat and his two mouse adversaries. you need not understand Russian to get in on the fun! They are at the polyclinic, and all sort of mayhem ensues.
